Twinks are one thing, but Classic Raiding is still going to be difficult. Time will tell, but I really don't think it's going to be very easy to find 40 self-capped people (at lvl 60 or 70) on any given server who can all meet at the same time and knock-out an old dungeon. Let alone raid-balance.I think having a "Classic" or "tBC" server would help centralize people who are interested in running classic raids. Until that happens, it's going to be left to the WoW community to coordinate this themselves. It's another good idea had by Blizz, but I'm not sure how effective it will be in accomplishing its goal.

Just coordinate with all other classic raiders to xfer or reroll on some server and make it the "de facto" classic raid server by your sheer number.

Interestingly, I have a level 60 toon on a vanilla-capped account. I did this because the idea of doing some classic raiding seemed appealing.Unfortunately, it's not as fun as it might seem. Even at 60, these days, all the new talents and abilities have changed everything. We were always able to clear the first half of Molten Core with no more than 15 level 60s..... it only takes a good 20 or so to do Ragnaros.

Sephiraph: As I said, it's up to the community (players) to coordinate, unfortunately.Jhestor:Interesting point. Yet another solid argument for a Vanilla/tBC server. People who didn't experience the content the first-time through will never know the 'real' challenge of these dungeons unless they were playing with the actual gear, talent-trees, etc...Then, of course there's gems, enchants, Shammys (Allies) and Pallies (horde).If there were truely a 'vanilla-server' these things could be controlled. I wonder if there would be enough interest amongst the community to keep a server like that active.
